  1. Dear Vivian
    I would love to learn the tarot and was wondering if you teach this course in a workshop? I would be interested in doing so.


    • Hi Wendy,

      Sorry for the delay is getting back to you. I have so much writing to do and doing all this on my own that it takes time to cover all areas. Regarding workshops, I used to do them but the Course is now so vast that it would take much more than a workshop to relay all the information. I may in the future hold some workshops for those who have covered or are covering this course on-line as then there would not be so much to do. We could concentrate or strengthening your knowledge instead of teaching you from scratch. I have been approached before to teach a one-day tarot course that would cover all the cards!!!!! Imagine that? Impossible. Which part of the country are you from?

      Brightest Blessings,



    • Hi Sue,

      You are a wonderful supporter and when I am finished writing the full course I may decide to do some workshops. At present the workload involved in creating Truly Teach Me Tarot leaves little time for organising anything else. I am a one man band at present but hopefully when the pressure begins to ease, I can start giving time to other areas related to my work.


  2. Hello Vivien,
    the efforts that you have put into this Blog are beyond commendable ! Honestly, the homework needs a lot of brain-storming to do, unlike typical school home-works ! Thank you so much 🙂


    • Thanks Nidhi,

      I have so much more work to do and haven’t homework completed for all lessons either. It is just me writing and managing website so at times I feel a bit weighed down like the Ten of Wands!
